Colorado Hospital implements GE Centricity
Dec. 5 – The University of Colorado Hospital has gone live with GE Healthcare’s Centricity preoperative system to streamline surgical services across five business segments.

GE said the system integrates anesthesia, nursing, scheduling, surgery management and pre-procedures services into one patient record that allows caregivers to provide efficient and safe patient care. With integrated nursing and anesthesia documentation, clinicians can capture and communicate vital patient data across the perioperative environment, according to GE.

The new University of Colorado Hospital 309-bed teaching facility, which opened in June, is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo.
